Striker Tom Denton could be unavailable for Chesterfield for around ten weeks.
The big frontman is currently sidelined with a knee injury, and Spireites boss James Rowe has said today:
“Tom Denton is still unavailable. He’s having an operation on Tuesday to clear up his knee.
“We are hoping it is just a clear-up, but we are looking at around ten weeks for Tom.”
In addition, midfielder Joe Rowley is estimated to be out for around five weeks, with a hamstring problem.
